This is my second Residence Inn on this trip, and the brand is pretty consistent. This property is well maintained, and as usually the case, has a friendly and responsive staff. The breakfast buffet is ok, by you probably don't want to eat there every day. The manager's reception is pretty pathetic. Monday was a pretty good salad with some... More

Our son had a soccer tournament at the Mason District Park, this hotel was the perfect location. Stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which worked out perfectly. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Hotel was busy with soccer teams and I think a cheerleading group but enough washers and driers ($2 each use) there was no wait. Breakfast area large enough... More

The Residence Inn Fairfax Merrifield was in a location that you might not expect to find a hotel. The sign on the road was easy to see, but turning in to the drive places you with townhomes immediately on the right, a fenced school bus parking lot on the left, and either a corporate office building or a bland looking...

My wife, daughter and mother-in-law stayed here for the weekend. The two bedroom suite was a good money saver, compared to two individual rooms. The suite was clean, and we had enough towels. The gas fireplace worked. There were 3 flat screen TV's in the suite. The fridge was clean too. The free buffet breakfast was good. It wasn't gourmet... More

What were they thinking? At first I though the room smelled of cigarette smoke, but maybe it was just the cleaning agent they used - possibly carbolic acid? Except for the TV the room was worn out. The refrigerator was old, dirty and the door shelf was broken (no way to stand up an open bottle of wine therein). The... More
